Composting

We compost over 400,000 tonnes of green and organic wastes each year from local authorities and businesses of all sizes.

We manage and operate a number of facilities that, under strict control procedures, transform organic wastes to produce high quality compost and digested products.

We are an experienced compost producer and much of our Revive compost is certified to the national BSI PAS 100 quality assurance standard, accredited by the Renewable Energy Association's Organics Recycling Group (ORG).

By separating your Food & Organics Recycling can have a huge impact on your cost-efficiency.

After a free waste audit, our team will be able to advise you on how to reduce the size and weight of your general waste bin, helping you save on costs associated with environmental compliance and landfill tax. 

Composting process 

Open windrow composting reprocesses garden waste - grass cuttings, leaves, weeds and hedge trimmings - from Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) and kerbside collections. Over 12 weeks it is shredded, mixed and placed into huge windrows, or elongated piles. These are turned regularly to allow oxygen to feed the bacteria and other microorganisms, which over a 12 week cycle, transform the material into a stable, rich dark compost which is sanitised and weed seed free. The compost is then screened to various grades suited to specific markets.

We also operate a number of high-tech In-Vessel Composting (IVC) facilities in partnership with local authorities in the UK to deal with co-mingled food and garden waste. Computerised monitoring and forced aeration ensure correct conditions are maintained to safely sanitise and stabilise the material. Harnessing and accelerating the natural decomposition process, finished high quality compost is produced in as little as one month, whereupon maturation ensues and screening allows agricultural and horticultural grades to be produced.
